Scrap Fan Afghan and Pillow Crochet Pattern
The Scrap Fan Afghan and Pillow Crochet Pattern is the perfect choice for using up all those scraps that seem to accumulate over the years. You will have fun pulling together the color combinations for these pretty fan designs, whether you want to make the pillow, afghan or both projects. One of the best features of this project is that you don't have a large shopping list of yarn. Both the afghan and pillow are perfect for all the extra scraps of yarn you have around the house that you thought you'd never be able to use. Not only will you be able to clean up all the yarn clutter in your craft area, but you'll also be able to wrap yourself in luxury once this crochet pattern is complete.
The fan crochet pattern is similar to the Dresden Plate quilt block that dates back to the early 20th century. This fun crochet pattern uses basic crochet stitches to create the fan design in each block. The Scrap Fan Afghan and Pillow Pattern is an easy crochet level, so even a beginner crochet level can make this luxurious throw or pillow. It is possible for each fan to have a different color combination if you have a large amount of yarn scraps. If you have more scraps than it takes to make the afghan, consider making another afghan as a gift. You will find that a scrap crochet pattern project gives a sense of accomplishment once you see how economical and fun they are to make
